Hoopz was of course the first winner of the series thus cementing her place in the showbiz.
Who would have thought that she would go from kissing on Flav to hanging off of Shaquille O’Neal like he is a jungle gym?
I feel like it completely switched half way through and then she became this character and that character she had, she has had to keep all this time because that is what people know her from. And what happened to Pumkin after the you guys had your falling out? I always had to chose the best things for me and make the right decisions and it will keep just going on and on and a lot of people get on reality TV and think like, “Oh wow I’m a star now” and I always think way beyond that.
I don’t know if that is hard for her or easy as pie but it seems easy. My family has always been the meat and potatoes of my life and I have always taken care of them and I knew I had to do one more thing just to get them out from underneath my wings.
Standing there when Pumkin did spit in New York’s face and that is something that I couldn’t even predicted, even though I know how crazy New York is and I know how crazy Pumpkin was. It became a pivotal moment in reality television and nothing will ever top it because it was so genuinely real.
I will say [the producers] were so good at keeping so many things from you.
I think that they were geniuses on capturing the reality of the situation and I think that has changed because now so many people are involved in what’s going on [on reality shows] and, do things because they’re like, “this is what [the show] needs” versus putting people together and just letting them react.
To stand on that podium with 19 other girls, not knowing who was going to walk through the door was crazy.
She started off losing her head and I do know that she had been an actress out in LA before that. He and I are super cool friends and all that you saw was really real.
She would tell stories and stuff like that so clearly she knew what to do and me coming from scrapes off of brown town and dirt roads and just being plopped on but I’m listening. I saw him not too long ago in LA and just gave him a hug and I told him thank you.
